The Assessment Development Division of Educational Testing Service is seeking freelance writers, advanced graduate students, teachers, lecturers, and others who have an appreciation for good writing and a sense of the kinds of texts encountered by graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Successful candidates will work with ETS test development staff in developing reading comprehension materials for the GRE® revised General Test on subject matter relating to physical sciences, biological sciences, social science, and the humanities.
The six-week program will begin June 29th and end August 7th. Summer employees will work 8-hour days, Mondays-Friday, at the ETS campus in Princeton, NJ.
Candidates should submit a short (no more than one-page) sample text that they believe would be suitable for testing critical reading skills. The sample should not be a self-generated piece of writing, but rather an excerpt of material from a published source. It should exemplify writing that exhibits a level of complexity comparable to what would be encountered in graduate school, and it should be engaging to an academically diverse group of readers. The sample should submitted along with a CV or resume. Please include a citation for the source.
Interested candidates should apply online no later than Monday, March 23rd.
